The shofar, is made from the horns of an adult male antelope. The shofar is taken only from an antelope after it has died from a natural death. The reason why the horn of an adult male antelope is used in particular, is because it is longer, and more impressive than that of the female antelope.

The shofar creates a fascinating, awe inspiring and moving sound to all of those that hear it. Horn's have been used by many cultures since time immemorial, but the shofar is in particular, the one mentioned so oft in the Bible.
